Cornmeal Brunch Bites Recipe:

1. Sift together your dry ingredients of 1 cup maseca corn flour, 1 cup white flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a dash of cinnamon together in a large bowl.

2. Beat one egg and add  to dry ingredients. Add 1 1/4 cups milk and 1/4 cup oil and whisk all together to make a cakey batter.

3. Spoon batter into individual baking dishes, or if you don't have those, you can easily substitute a muffin tin. Bake at 350° for about 10-15 minutes 'til golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out clean.

4. When you're ready to serve, top with a generous dollop of whipped cream and some pretty berries for flavor and color!
